Hillary Clinton Wants To Be President. Is She Right For The Job?

When Hillary Clinton announced her bid for the much coveted 2008 presidential seat, there were no gasps of disbelief or declarations of " Whatta surprise!" from anyone. Unless of course, you've spent the better part of the last fifteen years holed up in a cave or have simply been glued to the boob tube rapturously watching soap operas,dimwitted talk shows and other light weight fare.

Ever since her husband Bill occupied the oval office back in 1993,she has none too secretly nursed similar political aspirations. And remember their joint proclamation, " You get two for one" meaning they would be jointly running the country? Well, if Hillary gets elected we'll have to endure another four years of Bill Clinton as the co-president. Now, for those of you who thought that President Clinton "walked on water"(and you know who you are), well, Hillary's ascension into the White House will seem like a Godsend. The two of them in tandem will once again weave their special Democratic magic. Which in turn means: higher taxes and more useless do gooder social programs. The average, hardworking taxpayer will again be viewed as the governments veritable piggy bank from which these said programs will be financed.

And to prove that some social programs never die ( they simply lie in wait until their eagerly anticipated resurrection), Hillary's much touted health care bill will be hauled out of moth balls, dusted off, then presented a second time to the American people 15 years later in hopes that this time her precious bill will sail effortlessly through Congress. Suffice to say,going into detail about what some political wags referred to as Hillary Health would take up far too much time here, so search Google for the skinny on this flawed plan that was touted as a panacea for our countries health care woes.

But like all liberal Democrats, feelings will be the order of the day. Remember when President Clinton told all of us that he "felt our pain"? Well, it's kinda hard for me to really take seriously how someone who wears expensive suits,confers with people of power and privilege and feasts on $500.00 a plate dinners can relate to the average, hard working taxpayer who shops at Value City,rubs elbows with his equally average friends and chows down at Ruby Tuesdays. Yet these rich,influential politicians can somehow "feel our pain". I doubt it. Or perhaps I'm being a tad too cynical? Nah,I was right the first time.

Please keep in mind, Hillary Clinton is cut from the same liberal cloth as her husband. To be honest about it, I really can't tell one from the other as far as political ideology is concerned;unless of course you compare libidos in which case Bill Clinton becomes the front runner in that race.

However,if you pine for the bygone days when William Jefferson Clinton ran the White House, then by all means vote for Hillary. Sure, your wallet will be a tad lighter from paying for all of Hillary's and the predominantly Democratic Congress's well meaning social programs, but you'll derive that warm n' buttery feeling from doing what's right for your fellow man. And in the end, aren't feelings what liberal politics are all about?

Kidnapper Cries " Not Guilty". Yeah. Right.

It never fails to amaze me that certain people have an incredible capacity for deluding themselves. Murderers on death row, for example, proclaim their innocence despite the cold, hard fact (i.e. Their finger prints found at the murder scene, their DNA found on the victim's corpse,ect,ect.) that prove otherwise. These nimrods spend countless hours attempting to vindicate themselves and enlist their bleeding heart lawyers to waste the courts valuable time to achieve this end. All in order to convince the rest of society(and themselves in the process) that the court system condemned the wrong man.

I know someone who is into substance abuse, or to be blunt about it : he's a coke head. This guy blames his mother and certain members of his mothers family(they were prone to alcoholism) for his addiction problems. He however, is an innocent victim. It's not his fault. I once said to him," Until you look in the mirror and say to yourself, 'It begins with me and it ends with me' you won't get any better." Well, my pearls of wisdom were totally wasted; I would've gotten more out of talking to an ashtray. He would much rather play the blame game than take responsibilities for his addiction; after all, that path is a much easier one to take.

Kidnapper Michael Devlin is deluding himself as well . Faced with charges of kidnapping two boys (one of them was held by him for four years) Mike told the press,and I can't believe the following words can out of his mouth, that life was good for him during this period. Good? Good for who? There is the possibility that sick, scumbag molested Shawn Hornbeck during that four year period. Especially with the statement that he ," was never really interested in romantic relationships", but wouldn't say if he was attracted to women.Which is very revealing if you ask me. Should evidence of molestation is proven, justice will be served if pervo boy is locked away in a jail cell for the rest of his shabby, sorry life. Or even better, letting the other inmates play a rousing game game of " kick the can" with Mikey as the can. Oh well, it was a thought.

The other victim, Ben Owenby, was only held captive for two weeks,which probably means that sicko Devlin didn't have much time in which to torment him. In the meantime, authorities in Lincoln County are looking into another missing boy case , that of 11 year old Charles"Arlin" Henderson who vanished in 1991. One detective called Devlin " the most viable lead " in the case. In other words, all the signs point in his direction.

Meanwhile,Devlin's attorneys, Michael Kielty and Ethan Corlija, have refused to return reporters phone calls seeking their comment on the case. Those poor schmucks are probably burning the midnight oil as they rack their collective brains coming up with a defense for their sicko mucho client . And while Devlin himself refuses to discuss anything about the case he did plead not guilty on Thursday to charges of kidnapping Ben, but has not entered a plea as of yet about the kidnapping of Shawn. Not guilty of kidnapping? Get a clue, Mikey! You forced him into your white pickup, you mentally defective asshole! That's kidnapping. He sure as hell didn't climb into your truck of his own free will. His lawyers, of course, will fall back on that old and trusted,yet effective defense: Devin is mentally ill and was not responsible for his actions. Horseshit!He and he alone is culpable for his heinous misdeeds and should be dealt with harshly by the court system.

Devlin stated that his own parents, who live near the prison where he resides in have not visited him since his arrest. Hey Mikey, don't tell me this comes as a great, big shock to you. You have to realize that having a son arrested for kidnapping two children and who is also accused of child molestation is not something most parents would take pride in. So ,I wouldn't expect them to strut proudly around their neighborhood announcing to one and all that their son is a kidnapper in jail. If anything, Mikey; you're a badge of shame, a black mark on your undeserving parents lives.You've disgraced yourself and them by your actions. And still, you plead Innocent of all charges. Unbelievable!

Devlin made a telling comment when he said in an interview," I'm not worried. It's inevitable.I will eventually have to deal with it. I haven't exactly done a great job of representing myself so far." No you haven't, Mikey. Not in the least. If anything, you've shown us you're your own worst enemy.
